FBI investigating Niger documents
FBI investigating Niger documents

THE FBI is investigating the documents that claimed to show Iraq was intent on buying uranium from Niger. Officials are working on the basis that the documents "tainted" other, reliable intelligence on Iraqs weapons programmes, according to a report in the Washington Times.

The documents, which formed the basis of a sentence in the US president, George Bushs, State of the Union speech, are widely believed to have come from the Italian intelligence service.

The reports that Iraq was trying to buy 500 tons of pure "yellowcake" uranium, emerged several months after Nigers embassy in Rome was burgled and ransacked.

The FBI has sent agents to Italy and other countries to try and track down the source.


Now the FBI is getting involved! :bounce:
Somebody needed a trip to Italy for the summer
